Tarot Card Comparisons: The Hermetic Qabalah-Thoth Tarot- Knight of Disks & The Connolly Tarot-King of Pentacles

The Tarot of EliKNIGHT OF DISKS [King of Pentacles in Waite, Golden Dawn, Connolly tarot and other decks]
 
In the zodiac the Knight of disks rules from 21 degrees Leo to 20 degrees Virgo, which is the Fiery part of Earth which mainly pertains to mountains, earth quakes and gravitation and also represents earth as a producer of Life.

To a Hermetic Qaballist, The Knight of Disks, represents the most condensed form of the Yod Force, or elemental life force which brings about fruition and growth (The Stag horned helmet represents regeneration).


As a Personality, the Knight of Disks, represents a mature man who is a healer, a doctor, a good mathematician, and/or crafts-persons who is concerned with quality and security. An older man that others rely on and often confide in, trust and seek advice from. Such a personality tends to be seen as lethargic in tenancy as well as, very stable and dependable.

In Mythology, the Knight of Disks, represents Baal the mountain god (In ancient Mesopotamia-Baal became the general name of many gods) who handed down laws from the mountain tops to those who dared to climb up and receive them. He was often seen as stern, authoritarian, heavy, tenacious, reliable and practical. Yet another Personification of an  Archetypal personality. 
 
 As Stated, the Thoth-The Knight of Disks represents the fiery part of Nature. Related to the phenomena of earthquakes, mountains and gravitation but also to agriculture and the activity of Earth that produces Life. In this case the heavily Armored Knight has his helmet thrown back, indicating a more placid state rather than violence.

In his hand he carries a flail which is used in thrashing grain. His horse has all its  feet on the ground, rather than the leaping horses of the Other Knights, and is nibbling the grasses. All of which point towards a solid standing in nutrition, which the Disk/Shield represents,and the Earthly activity of producing Life.

The Knight of Disks rules from 21st degree of Leo to the 20th degree of Virgo and is thus concern greatly with agriculture. This puts Mercury in Virgo which implies Intelligence; a cleverness that is very Natural in the animal world. This "Salt of the Earth" personality is very complex but well knit and if their contact with the Earth is a healthy one, such as agriculture, or a Medical Doctor or Herbalist, this is usually a well-defined persona. However, if they are forced into a world of Technology, or imaginative stretches beyond instinct, they tend to be ill defined.
The Thoth Knight of Disks represents the physician, the healer, and the farmer. A solidly natural personality who rides through fertile land.

The Connolly Tarot-King of Disks, is the comparable card to the Thoth Knight of Disks.
Illustrates a medieval King who is surrounded with good harvest.
He represents a steadfast persona, who is good with math, and holds a good position in industry. He seems to be a generous, affectionate soul who is always a good friend. All of which are qualities represented by the color of his garments; sunny yellows, of a bright mind.  Rose pinks, of a loving heart. Red cloak and gold necklace, indicating passion controlled by rational thought. The harvest of grapes, is a symbol of fertility.

If Thrown during Divination this Knight or King of Disks earthy qualities will be directed towards:
  • Tends to present a  heavy, and dull preoccupation with material things.
  • They are laborious and patient but show little intellectual grasp of emotional matters, even on  matters that concern themselves.
  • This Knight's success is mostly instinctual and/or in imitation of Nature.
  • Though he may lack initiative, he has the deep smoldering fire of Earth that produces growth.

  • The Querent is entering a period of  Spiritual Fruition.
  • A sense of happy practicality that is reflected in daily life.
  • They are experiencing Self-Knowledge  as steadiness, reliability, and accomplishment in the material world.

  • The earthly personality's total dependency on practicality, tending to make the person seem plodding, lethargic, and often unmovable.
  • A master of physical matters, but rarely understands emotionalism.
  • Romance and material imagination but can be ill defined as over-whelming ambition, superstition, and idle dreaming.
  • Also churlishness, jealousy (dull sort of way) of the more flexible minds around them which often keeps them looking stupid in the sense of lack of foresight even in their own affairs.
  • Such an ill dignified personality will find meddling about in petty matters to be their expertise, and they will spoil whatever comes their way.


  • All in all, The Knight of Disks, is a slow, stalwart, dependable, person of good physical strength and health. If the Reader is using a Celtic Cross pattern in their reading, and this card falls in the 4th position ("What is beneath you") this can mean Earthquakes or mountainous obstacles are to be encountered by the querent. But again, this depends on the surrounding cards (such as in House and Home--the seventh position especially so if a 7 of Disks is there.) otherwise, good health, good food, and a good physician are represented. If the Knight of Disks falls in the 7th position of House and Home, we have a masculine stalwart, dependable, Romantic presence in the querents life.
